Service was terrific. Margaritas were perfect. Fajitas were as good as it gets. Don't pass up this spot if you're hungry. You'll definitely miss out.

The shucked and shrimp cheesy nachos are awesome. Big grilled pieces of bell peppers and onions along with the sauce and meats, yummy yummy. Really nice workers and good margaritas.

The food is substandard. It appears every dish is pre-prepared and heated up by Chef Mike (the microwave). Too many Margarita options. There is like 5 options. One of the waiters insisted on speaking Spanish even though he could speak English. I would say something and he would repeat what I said in Spanish. I repeated it in English and... More

Simply stated, the best Mexican food I've tasted in some time, and I eat it often throughout the southwest. You won't regret stopping by. Service is good, quick, and atmosphere is terrific.

Visiting from out of town. Top shelf margaritas were fantastic. I'm kind of a salsa snob & this was pretty fresh4/5 stars. Shrimp quesadilla was absolutely delicious! Great service & atmosphere.

Enjoyed the food and the staff was friendly I was a little late so the crowd was small. I found the experience to be better than expected and would certainly stop by again if I was in the area.

A friend and I decided to have lunch here and it definitely didn't disappoint. I had the shrimp chimichangas which were filled with large grilled shrimp and grilled vegetables, but the best part was the awesome cheese sauce that the chimichangas were covered in! This place is a must-stop if you enjoy Mexican food!

Bad experience. We had taco salad and based on reviews expected it to be good - it wasn't 1/2 slice of tomato and not a lot of lettuce. Worst of all was a creamy cheese sauce under the meat that was nasty. Salsa was ok though. Service and prices were good but we won't be back

We had been driving all day and La Hacienda was thankfully located right down the service road from our hotel. Our waiter was friendly and welcoming although it was near closing time. The portions were generous and reasonably priced. They have a full bar and also TVs among the festively decorated interior. We made a great choice! Recommended...

We had jyst gotvinto town and was craving Mexican food. We found this place. Loved the cheese dip and our entrée were the bomb. My husband had the chicken chimichanga and I had the Polo Azteca. Great service, friendly and on top of your drink orders. Will be going back.
